In this study, the stress-strain relations of steels have been calculated as a function of microstructural morphologies of each phase by use of FEM program(i.e. ABAQUS). The mechanical behavior of low carbon steels is affected by the microstructural factors such as yield ratio, volume fraction, shape and distribution of each phase and so on. The effects of shape, volume fraction and yield ratio of each phase on the mechanical behavior were analyzed by using unit cell and whole specimen size models. Results obtained are summarized as follows. As the yield ratio of hard phase to that of soft phase and volume fraction of hard phase were increased, stress level of flow curves were increased. It was found that in whole specimen size model, as the particle size was decreased, higher stress level was shown. Lastly the relationship between microstructure and tensile properties was examined by using the steels with various microstructural morphologies.
